William P. Duval Chapter Committees

The National Society accomplishes the majority of its work under a committee system. The President General appoints a national chairman for each of the NSDAR committees. The national chairman then directs and supervises the activities of her committee, national vice chairmen, state chairmen, and chapter chairmen for the next three years of an administration.
